Blake Satterfield will be the third coach with the last name Satterfield to take over the Trousdale County football program.
Satterfield, 28 served as the Yellow Jackets defensive coordinator in 2018 and has been named the new Trousdale County head coach.
“Trousdale County has always had a rich football tradition and an amazing fan base. I am very fortunate to be able to lead our program, which is full of great young men. As the head coach, my goals are to get back to some traditions that have been lost over the years including: accountability, team identity, work ethic, skill development, toughness, and surrounding our student-athletes with good coaching as well as getting back to being recognized as one of the elite programs in Tennessee football,” Blake Satterfield said.
He will replace Brad Waggoner who resigned last month to accept the Elbert County (GA) job.
“We heard a lot in the community about the need to hire someone local who would provide stability and longevity to the program. “Blake has done a great job both coaching and teaching for us. I am positive that he will do equally as well in his new assignment,” Trousdale County School Superintdent Clint Satterfield said.
Waggoner led Trousdale County to a 19-8 record in his two seasons in Hartsville, two Class 2A playoff appearances which included a Class 2A runner up finish this season as the Yellow Jackets finished 11-4 losing to Peabody in the state title game.
Satterfield has only one season of varsity football experience and also spent two seasons coaching football at Jim Satterfield Middle school and Satterfield is also the high school varsity girls softball head coach as well.
Satterfield’s grandfather Jim Satterfield was the Yellow Jackets head football coach for 41 years (1955-96) winning the Class AA state title in 1972 and finished his coaching career with a 247-58 record.
Jim Satterfield also served as the Trousdale County School Superintendent for 26 years (1970-1996) as well.
Blake Satterfield’s dad Clint is currently the Trousdale County School Superintendent and won five state titles and posted a 238-61 overall record all at Trousdale County.
There are currently 17 programs looking for a head coach they are: Antioch, Bolton, Collierville, Covington, East Hickman, East Robertson, Greeneville, Halls, Hamilton, Hillcrest, Hillwood, Nashville Overton, Northeast, Northpoint Christian, Tellico Plains, Waverly and Wayne County
